Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

This one fits our bikes. There are a few different makes out there & fixing them on is a choice between double sided tape tape (like car number plates are put on with) & self tapping screws etc through the mudguard.

I put one on with silicone a couple of years ago, and it's still there despite being rather abraded by stones picked up by the tyre.

Whacked mine on a month ago using the plastic posh rivets they supply now. I can understand why you might not want to drill the mudguard though.

Biggest pain if you're lazy like me is pulling the guard off without dropping the front wheel! Very Happy

Rivets -> drilling.

Just do it. (ooh I love abusing silly commercial slogans like this one from Nike)

Yes mate, the extender comes with four small black plastic posh rivets. You drill four holes through both guard and extender, then the rivets push through.

That said, if you don't fancy that, plenty of people use sealant and adhesive and that seems to work fine

I can't remember the brand but mine came with self tapping screws and double sided adhesive tape. Was easy to fit and been on around 9 years. Combined with a radiator grille, its kept the radiator in good condition.

I just bought this one from m&p - wanted one in gloss black and came with plastic push rivets rather than screws or such.

I'd fitted one to a previous bike so knew straight away to bin the sticky stuff it came with as I find the width only creates an inconvenient spacer so taped it to the mudguard drilled the holes then removed added some Araldite and used the rivets - job done Smile
